mapping for flood assistance, etc?

Hi guys,

Just got back to localhost and have been looking at the shocking news
of flooding up north.  If there's anyway I can personally (or our
group) help with mapping to assist relief efforts let me know.

recent potlatch changes

For potlatch users, there will be incremental updates that maybe
rolling out in a couple of weeks.  These changes were based on the
usability study presented during the SOTMEU In Vienna.  The first one
rolled out this week,  the save button is now moved to the left side
of the panel instead of the usual right.

In my opinion, the zoom +/- should also be moved to the left for
consistency with the usual map browsing.

Another interesting tool you might use for P2 is the OSMInspector
overlay  provided by Geofabrik.  This shows some common errors you can
fix.  Details here:

Re: recent potlatch changes

i noticed the changes...was looking for the save button and found it on the other side
i also agree with the zoom placement at the upper left corner of the screen, like most other maps
place them

blocked applications using excessive resources of OSM

FYI,

Some of you maybe using the apps (free or paid) listed here:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Blocked_applications

These apps were blocked by the OSM admins for non-compliance with the
Tile Usage Policy.  If you have paid for an app listed here, please
request the developer to setup their own map rendering service so that
they do not consume too much resource from the main osm servers.
Further explanations in the above link.

osm use cases in the wild

Hi,

Just happy to report that last week I was in a university down south
helping several university faculty with their research activities.  My
role is simple, make their research output map aware.  After 4 days of
informal workshops we were able to collect data, transform them into
maps and relate these information into their respective research which
range from the natural science, social science and engineering domain.

One of the great dataset we were able to utilize is the tremendous
detail of OSM data in their research areas.  While road data is not
the main dataset they are interested in.  The availability of this
data allowed us to focus on the other data needed and use OSM as
complement in various forms.  Either as baselayer for a webmap, a
reference for geocoding raster images, a timeshot for understanding
urban expansion and landcover changes.  I will give more details once
these projects gets into public release (you know how the academe
works :) ).

Another important note is that prior to being a user of the data these
faculties are first and foremost contributors and supporters of OSM
[0] so they are aware of the spirit and motivations of OSM.

My personal advise to anyone interested in using OSM in their own
projects (either for fun or profit), be a contributor first. ;)

Press Release
October 9, 2011


3-D disaster map from AusAID to lift Mayor Lani’s Disaster Risk Reduction efforts in Taguig
 
Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano is pleased for selecting the city as pilot testing site for the high-resolution, geo-hazard map given to the Philippines by the Australian government under the extensive disaster risk reduction assistance program known as BRACE.
 
Mayor Cayetano underscored the great aid the local government stands to receive from the technology, which uses Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) in order to get a three- dimensional (3-D) model of any given location.
 
“The application of this technology in creating a geo-hazard map will be a challenge among us decision-makers of the city government particularly during instances of typhoons, flooding, landslides, tornadoes and earthquakes. With this, we will be able to determine which areas in Taguig are in peril,” Mayor Cayetano said.
 
Ronald Galicia, officer-in-charge of Taguig Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO), said the acquisition of the LIDAR technology is a “welcome development” for the city government.
 
“This technology arrived just in time to address the changes in the environment that we are witnessing. We need this to respond to the challenges of climate change,” Galicia explained.
 
Australian Aid (AusAID) chose Taguig as pilot testing site for the LIDAR technology since the city is on the path to development.
 
Andrew Egan of AusAID vowed to cooperate with the city government of Taguig in improving land use planning right after they get data from the high-resolution maps.
 
Lawyer Darwin Icay, Mayor Cayetano’s spokesperson, underscored the technology’s value in helping the city government of Taguig prepare for disasters.
 
“Typhoon Ondoy taught us all a neat lesson. With this in mind, the Cayetano administration has set in motion steps that will help us respond during times of tragedy. The ability to create a sophisticated geo-hazard goes hand-in-hand with our planned 24/7 health centers, the modernization of the local bureau of fire protection, the Geographic Information System and even the Taguig City Integrated Survey System (TCISS),” concluded Icay. ###



Disaster risk reduction efforts ni Mayor Lani ng Taguig palalakasin ng donasyong 3D disaster map ng AusAID        
 
Itinuturing ni Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano na isang magandang balita ang pagkakapili sa lungsod para sa pilot test ng high-resolution geo-hazard map na ipinagkaloob ng pamahalaan ng Australia sa Pilipinas sa  pamamagitan ng mas malawak na disaster risk reduction assistance program na kung tawagin ay BRACE Program.
 
Sinabi ni Mayor Cayetano na makatutulong ng malaki sa disaster risk reduction efforts ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Taguig ang teknolohiyang ito na gumagamit ng laser beams na kung tawagin ay Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) para makakuha ng three-dimensional (3-D) model ng isang lugar.
 
“Magsisilbing malaking hamon para sa pamahalaang lungsod kung paano gagamitin ng mga katulad naming decision-maker ang teknolohiyang ito para makabuo ng isang sophisticated geo-hazard map na magagamit sa paghahanda sa mga darating na unos tulad ng bagyo, baha, pagguho ng lupa, pagtama ng ipo-ipo at paglindol. Sa pamamagitan nito ay malalaman natin kung anu-anong lugar sa Taguig ang may mga nakaambang panganib,” giit ni Mayor Cayetano.
 
Para naman kay Ronald Galicia, officer-in-charge ng Taguig Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO), ang LIDAR technology ay isang welcome development para sa pamahalaang lungsod.
 
“Tamang-tama ang pagdating ng teknolohiyang ito sa mga pagbabagong nagaganap sa ating kapaligiran. Kailangang-kailangan natin ito ngayon para makatugon sa mga pagbabagong dulot ng climate change,” pahayag ni Galicia.
 
Napili ng Australian Aid (AusAID) ang Taguig para sa pilot testing ng LIDAR technology dahil pasibol pa lamang ang development sa lungsod.
 
Ayon kay Andrew Egan ng AusAId, makikipagtulungan sila sa Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Taguig para mapagbuti nito ang land use planning sa sandaling makakuha na sila ng mga datos mula sa high-resolution maps.
 
Iginiit naman ni Atty. Darwin Icay, tagapagsalita ni Mayor Cayetano na tunay na malaki ang maitutulong nito sa hangarin ng pamahalaang lungsod na ihanda ang Taguig sa mga unos katulad ng Bagyong Ondoy.
 
“May iniwang aral sa atin ang epekto ng Bagyong Ondoy. Dahil dito ay may mga nai-punla nang hakbangin  ang Cayetano administration para makatugon sa isang trahedya. Ang pagkakaroon ng sophisticated geo-hazard map ay akmang-akma sa ikinakasang 24/7 health centers, ang planong pagmu-modernisa ng lokal na pamatay-sunog, ang Geographic Information System at maging ang Taguig City Integrated Survey System (TCISS),” pagtatapos ni Atty. Icay.###

Fwd: [OSM-talk] Installing your own tileserver on Ubuntu

Hi guys,

This sounds interesting. Rendering and making tiles just for the Philippines is viable on a desktop or even a laptop since the PBF file for the country is only 27 MB.

Subject: [OSM-talk] Installing your own tileserver on Ubuntu
To: talk-3+rWM/WnaLOn4i5uJCXUsti2O/JbrIOy@public.gmane.org


Hello everyone,

with the recent need to crack down on tile scrapers and apps to not over
tax the main OSM tileservers and hosting, there has been a lot of talk
trying to convince people to set up their own tileserver.

Although that is of cause by far not the only hurdle to set up your own
tileserver, one barrier is perhaps the perceived complicated procedure
to set up all the elements necessary. Although there are a number of
decent howtos already available on the wiki (perhaps even to many, each
containing slightly different advice...), it is perhaps still more
effort than people want to get into.

In the hope to make this process even simpler, I have created a bunch of
packages for Ubuntu containing all the necessary software, as well as
glue packages to deal with the necessary setup and interaction between
the different components.

The packages aren't perfect yet, but hopefully sufficiently helpful
already to be of use to others who are interested in playing around with
their own tileserver.

A simple standard tileserver can now be setup in 5 commands in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kakrueger/openstreetmap
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-tile
wget http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/north-america/us/colorado.osm.pbf
osm2pgsql
-C 1500 colorado.osm.pbf
sudo /etc/init.d/renderd restart

At the end you should have a working tileserver based on mod_tile and
renderd with the standerd OSM-mapnik stylesheet.

You can test it out by opening the installed slippymap at
http://localhost/osm/slippymap.html

You will of cause want to replace the above lines with the downloading
and importing of an extract with the extract you care about.

Although for smaller areas hardware requirements aren't too bad, they
quickly go up beyond what can be handled by a standard desktop computer.
My rough guestimate of what a typical desktop / laptop can handle is
about an extract of 100 - 300 Mb (no more than an hours worth of
import). This covers most of the US and German states, as well as many
of the other less densely mapped countries.

If you are more serious about your tileserver, you will need to tune the
various configuration settings, but just to play around and for personal
use, the default settings should work reasonable.

More information can be found on yet another wiki-page... (
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ubuntu_tile_server )

Any comments or feedback are welcome,

Kai

trying to convince people to set up their own tileserver.<br><br>
Although that is of cause by far not the only hurdle to set up your own<br>
tileserver, one barrier is perhaps the perceived complicated procedure<br>
to set up all the elements necessary. Although there are a number of<br>
decent howtos already available on the wiki (perhaps even to many, each<br>
containing slightly different advice...), it is perhaps still more<br>
effort than people want to get into.<br><br>
In the hope to make this process even simpler, I have created a bunch of<br>
packages for Ubuntu containing all the necessary software, as well as<br>
glue packages to deal with the necessary setup and interaction between<br>
the different components.<br><br>
The packages aren't perfect yet, but hopefully sufficiently helpful<br>
already to be of use to others who are interested in playing around with<br>
their own tileserver.<br><br>
A simple standard tileserver can now be setup in 5 commands in a terminal:<br><br>
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kakrueger/openstreetmap<br>
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-tile<br>
wget <a href="http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/north-america/us/colorado.osm.pbf%0Aosm2pgsql" target="_blank">http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/north-america/us/colorado.osm.pbf<br>
osm2pgsql</a> -C 1500 colorado.osm.pbf<br>
sudo /etc/init.d/renderd restart<br><br>
At the end you should have a working tileserver based on mod_tile and<br>
renderd with the standerd OSM-mapnik stylesheet.<br><br>
You can test it out by opening the installed slippymap at<br><a href="http://localhost/osm/slippymap.html" target="_blank">http://localhost/osm/slippymap.html</a><br><br>
You will of cause want to replace the above lines with the downloading<br>
and importing of an extract with the extract you care about.<br><br>
Although for smaller areas hardware requirements aren't too bad, they<br>
quickly go up beyond what can be handled by a standard desktop computer.<br>
My rough guestimate of what a typical desktop / laptop can handle is<br>
about an extract of 100 - 300 Mb (no more than an hours worth of<br>
import). This covers most of the US and German states, as well as many<br>
of the other less densely mapped countries.<br><br>
If you are more serious about your tileserver, you will need to tune the<br>
various configuration settings, but just to play around and for personal<br>
use, the default settings should work reasonable.<br><br>
More information can be found on yet another wiki-page... (<br><a href="http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ubuntu_tile_server" target="_blank">http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ubuntu_tile_server</a> )<br><br>

Re: Fwd: [OSM-talk] Installing your own tileserver on Ubuntu

Wow. 5 steps to setup tileserver in Ubuntu.

I took me last Saturday and Sunday just to setup PostGIS and move OSM
data (Australia.osm.pdf) using osm2pgsql and still have problem
rendering it to TileMill in Mac OS X.

Postgresql and PostGIS are not so good in Mac OS X at the moment,
problem in finding the postgresql database data.

If you want a different theme you can use this osm-hybrid-carto for TileMill.

https://github.com/andrewharvey/osm-hybrid-carto

OSM-Ph can probably sell services to local governments (towns and
barangays) in creating custom maps (digital and hardcopy). It is good
fund raising.

Re: Fwd: [OSM-talk] Installing your own tileserver on Ubuntu

This sounded so good, I thought I'd give it a go this afternoon. However the commands given as typed in the
email don't work. I'd recommend reading the long version at the wiki page he references later on: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ubuntu_tile_server

Specifically I found these problems: 

- After adding the repository, you need to do an 'apt-get update' before the next step. 

- Very IMPORTANT. He doesn't mention the configuration step after installing libapache2-mod-tile.
According to the wiki you need to "add your own username after www-data in order to import data". As I didn't
do this, the renderer did not work. I've also spent about two hours trying to re-configure this setting,
and can't find out how to do it. So, yes, read the wiki first. 

- The osm2pgsql misses out the --slim command line element. I also found that I needed to reduce the memory
usage, having only 1Gb in my laptop. The --verbose helped as well. so:
	osm2pgsql --slim --cache 300 --verbose philippines.osm.pbm

So what could have been a five minute wonder install has now turned into a three hour marathon for me due to bad
instructions. Read the wiki.
